WH Press Sec Sean Spicer returned to the press cabin before Marine One was wheels up to respond to the AP report on National Guard being used to round up people in the U.S. illegally.

“That is 100% not true. It is false. It is irresponsible to be saying this.”

“There is no effort at all to round up, to utilize the National Guard to round up illegal immigrants.”

“I wish you guys had asked before you tweeted," he added. AP reporter noted they asked multiple times before publication.

Spicer couldn’t categorically state that this was never a subject of discussion somewhere in the administration.

“I don’t know what could potentially be out there, but I know that there is no effort to do what is potentially suggested.”

"It is not a White House document."
